Hey yall!You might have remembered seeing my posts via social media and my blog here seeking submissions for Millennial Movie Night, a film program I curated in collaboration with the awesome people of Collected Voices and OpenTV. The point of Millennial Movie Night was to showcase films by... you guessed it Millennials! At first I had this idea to showcase the films of young filmmakers in the LGBTQ community but wasn't getting the amount of submissions I hoped for so I expanded to Millennials of all identities.
So boom, submission called, juried entries, sent out acceptance letter, planned the evening and here we are...Millennial Movie Night!
We presented films by:
Hanna M. Owens
Layne Marie Williams
Free Spirit Media
and my dear friend and fellow artist Nathan Wright allowed me to use to video vignettes as intro transitions between my films. Thanks Nathan!
I was very excited to screen these films, they were all well done and it I was inspired and excited to see what was next for these filmmakers. There are some really creative people in this world yall! The talent was energizing. Concluding the screen we even had a nice dialogue with some of the filmmakers and audience members! It was a great night.
The evening even received some press which was really rad and you can read about it here.
Now for some pictures:
On another note, I'm really getting into film programming, its a real treat and blessing to give other filmmakers and creatives platforms to showcase their work, because as you know.. its hard yall LOL! Anyhoo Millennial Movie Night rocked!Until the next event...Thanks for reading!!
